Razer shows its Gamescom surprise

Here comes the Naga

Razer has prepared a surprise for the upcoming GamesCom show in Cologne, and now we are looking at a new mouse designed especially for MMO players. The only thing that Razer missed in its products portfolio was the MMO mouse.

The new Naga, has a total of 17 buttons, thanks to the 12 button thumb grid. The rodent is still wired, has a 5600 DPI laser sensor, a 1ms response time, Razer's Zero-acoustic Ultraslick Teflon feet and looks quite mean.

We are a bit skeptical about the 12 button thumb grid and its functionality as it was quite hard to find a mouse that has a perfect location of those two, back and forward, buttons. On the other hand, Razer is quite known for its gaming peripherals and we will set our doubts aside for now, as might have a chance to get a hold of this one and try it ourselves.

In addition to the Naga, Razer has also prepared a Megasoma mat, a translucent silicon mousepad that can be used for both laser and optical mice. This 350 x 230 x 2mm mousepad is called a hybrid by Razer, and marketed as a mousepad for both hard and soft mat users.

Both the Naga and Megasoma are listed at Razer's site with an "Available online soon" tag. The Naga will be sold for US $79.99/€79.99, while the Megasoma has a US $49.99/€49.99 pricetag.
